About Us


Dedicated to nurturing children in mind, body and spirit

Chesterfield Academy opened its doors in November 2008 with the goal of providing high-quality, flexible and affordable early childhood education. Since then, we have touched hundreds of children and families in the community. As we continue to grow, we promise every family that we will live up to their expectations by creating a higher standard of care, education and learning for the mind, body and spirit of children and parents who come through our doors.

Our Mission

We adhere to the ministry of faith-based ethics and values by providing high quality education and care for the mind, body and spirit. Our commitment to a faith-based education calls us to structure our programs through these ideals:

To achieve this mission, we pledge to be creative, visionary leaders committed to educating young children in our community.

  • Create caring and compassionate environments

  • Respect the dignity of every child and person

  • Care for the resources entrusted to us as responsible stewards

  • Collaborate with others to improve the education of our communities

  • Attend especially to the needs of those who are poor and disadvantaged

  • Act with integrity in all endeavors


Nurturing environment and quality child care

We are a State-Licensed, 501C3 “Not for Profit” teaching facility for children ages 6 weeks – 10 years old. Each age group has its own separate classroom and each classroom has curriculum in place, which is carried out through weekly lesson plans. As a theme-based school, we have a different theme each week for classroom curriculum and activities to revolve around.

Family Involvement

We believe that parent involvement is a huge part of a child’s preschool success, so Chesterfield Academy provides parents several opportunities to be a part of our school-wide activities and events. Just a handful of our school-wide activities and events include:

  • Classroom parties

  • Grandparents Day

  • Mother’s and Father’s Days Teas

  • "We Believe" Christmas Program

  • Literacy Night

  • “Messy Play” Night

  • Pre-Kindergarten Graduation


Committed to 


Our “Open-Door Policy” encourages parents to visit their child throughout the day and allow for ongoing communication through our Brightwheel app. Daily, real-time updates and photos keep you informed about your child’s day and their achievement of developmental milestones while here at Chesterfield Academy.
